Well you see, my young Padawan, the Russian and Spanish languages are actually very distantly related. A couple thousand years ago, there were no Spanish, German, English, Hindi, Russian, Persian, Nepali, French, Polish, etc, but a language called Proto-Indo-European (PIE). The speakers of the language lived in what are now the south of Eastern Ukraine and north of the Caucasus Mts. They were the first group/tribe to use horses for transportation, and they spread rapidly into Europe, Hindustan, and even what is now Turkey. Their language spread with them, and now all but two languages in Europe are descended from PIE, together with languages in the north of India, and parts of Afganistan and Iran. Some of its moribund descendants include Hittite, of the mighty Hittite Empire, and three languages in the Tarim Basin, China (!). Examples of their relationship include: Sanskrit agni (fire)-English ignite-Slavic ognь; Latin pater-Sanskrit pitā-English father; Slavic brat-English brother; Belgian basta-Slavic dosta; English sister-Slavic sestra-Latin soror;English fart(
Actually, I got most of my facts right, since my mom took historical linguistics in college, I like reading through her textbooks. I'm not sure though about Indo-Europeans being the FIRST people to use horses, I read that in Larry Gonick's 'Cartoon History of the Universe', I have no evidence to back that up.
I'm not sure about the mobile app, but you can buy "timed practice" in the store, and if you then "practice" in the web version, you can choose to do it in a timed manner. You'll get a set of 20 questions with a time limit, and you get 1 XP for every question you answer correctly within that time.
A room qualifies as baño if it has "a sink, a shower, a bath tub, a toilet, or other sanitary equipment". Anything goes, basically. (Sourced from the RAE, need to scroll down to "cuarto de baño".)
If you just want a toilet room, you can call it "(cuarto de) aseo" or "(cuarto de) lavabo", most commonly.
I do. On Duolingo you find people learning and commenting from around the world, and different English-speaking places use some very different words and phrases. That's why sometimes something is obvious to one person and needs more explanation to another. Eg Americans use one single word, 'bathroom', to mean both 'a room where you use the toilet' or 'a room to get washed in'; British people use two separate words, 'toilet' and 'bathroom'. There can be similar confusions about 'sink' and 'hand basin' for some people.
Vámonos para el baño que nadie nos está viendo - Let's go to the bathroom so nobody sees us
Si no me conoces, nos vamos conociendo - If you don't know me, we will get to know each other
Sé que suena loco pero me gusta tanto - I know it seems crazy, but I like it so much
Estar un día más así, yo no lo aguanto - Being like that for one more day, I can't stand it
Yessssss that's what I thought about! You love Enrique? He's my King, I adore him and I'm seeing him on November 6th in Sofia, Bulgaria (my country) and that's why my profile picture is the Bulgarian flag in front of a photo of one of Enrique Iglesias' concerts in Bulgaria. <3 <3 <3
JasmineSBe2 Significa habitación con bañera, como en inglés. Pero... sustituye al sitio donde hay un inodoro (en la puerta de un establecimiento público WC, water closed porque el inodoro lleva sifón que no deja pasar el olor y permanece el agua cerrada) y un lavabo. Coloquialmente se llamaba water al inodoro. Ahora ir al baño significa ir a usar el inodoro e incluso defecar: ¿vas al baño todos los días? Es un problema de eufemismos.
